    Oh how exciting Coco! I just ordered mine from chemist warehouse and got DH some sperm vitamins too

    I only have one month more on BC and then I'll be the same as you Coco

    Sounds very promising MrsT

    Oh how exciting coco!

    Mrst, join in on the crazy person bandwagon

    Still nothing here. No af, no *sign* of af but I haven't tested for a couple of days. I plan on seeing my gp this coming week for a bt if af doesn't arrive. 4 full days late now, cervix is still super high & closed (i became quite adept at checking that when ttc the first time - even stranger, after my middy did an internal when I was in labour, she let me check it out too! Weird....) I haven't even told dh I'm late, I don't want to get his hopes up

    On a happier note, I took dd to the royal show this morning. Spent half the day there watching & petting the animals, playing every single "ball in the clowns mouth" that we came across and even watch a Peppa pig show. Great morning, she is exhausted and well asleep already. Mummy has just tucked into the pipes of chocolate!

    We're not going to start just yet. I want a few months after BCP to build up the lining in my uterus.

    But it is very exciting!!

    MrsT - are you finding your kitties are a little more clingy? If so, then it might be a sign...

    Michelle I hope no af means good things. Fingers crossed.

    Today I found out my friend is extremely judgemental of other people's parenting. We were all together in a group and my friend kept pointing out things which probably aren't the best parenting skills. Not quite sure how I feel about it. Should I tell her to not be so judgemental or do I just nod and not say anything?

    I did say to her if I did anything that she thought was bad parenting I would like her to tell me.

    Oh no neither am I Coco...I mean I will be joining you on the no BC which is exciting as it's one step closer. Still thinking Aprilish for TTC. That way I too would have built up healthy uterine lining and also flushed it out nicely TMI lol.

    Hmm so not a fan of that! Can you maybe next time she says something, be like woah that was a bit harsh in a jokey way or look out mrs perfect is in town?? I think if you try and soften it with humour it always goes down better. But it'll continue if you don't say anything. Having said all of this, I am the worst at confrontation but if someone does it enough times, I will end up saying something to them especially when it comes to racism!

    That's good news Michelle. I hope you end up having a bfp to share with DH soon!! I wish I knew how to check my cervix. I think mine may be tilted as last time I had a papsmear it took the GP a little bit to find it. Hope it doesn't hinder my ability to conceive.

    The show would be great to take a little-in to. Especially the little kiddie rides!

    Oh I am so excited we may be having to BFPs in our little group!!

    Once again been a bad friend, but I am reading along if I am not posting as I don't want to miss anything.

    DD is currently in wonder week, in the past it hasn't bothered her, but I think she has been talking to the other babies her age and realised that she should be screaming the house down all hours of the night. So mummy has been getting little sleep, and will be running on fumes today.

    Oh gawd typical. I check 22 times a day if anyone has posted, and no one ever does. I leave my phone at a friends house over night and you all start getting chatty HAHA.
    Michelle that's still good news yet. Are you normally very regular? Do try to stay calm and collected as you know stress does hold AF off too, sometimes! Maybe try a test now that it's been a few days. I'm quite impressed with your willpower! I'm the sort to test morning and night haha. I'm trying so hard to hold out to 10dpo as I know realistically before that I could be getting false negs anyway.
    Very exciting that Little Miss enjoyed the show, next year will be even better, with a greater capacity for understanding and excitement :-)

    I would love to know how to understand my cervix, but I wouldn't even know how to locate it let alone understand how it's positioned. Never had any Pap smear issues though, so I assume it's un it's usual spot lol.

    Our kittens are always super affectionate, and always on laps or under the blankets snuggling, so it's hard to say if there's added affection. Definitely no abdomen specific interest though. Their favourite spot to lay on me hasn't changed :-)

    Coco I think being over judgement of parenting is pretty much on par with bad parenting in itself. It shouldn't happen, but it likely won't change. I think you'll find that even if your friend stops saying it out loud due to your request, she will still be thinking it. A leopard rarely changes it's spots. In saying that, if you could entertain a healthy debate over it, maybe you could raise the veil over her eyes a little. Maybe try to ask her WHY she thinks such and such is bad? And then maybe suggest possible reasons as to why the parent is doing what they're doing. As we all know, parenting is never as easy as it looks, and there's almost always back story that we are not aware of.

    Kim sorry to hear bout bub, but at least you know it's only a phase and you'll soon be back to normal :-( good luck for the horror of today lol :-/

    Kim, you poor thing. I always wonder too why they're called winder 'weeks' - they never last a week! We suffered badly up until her 1st birthday but we haven't noticed them since. Hang in there!

    Mrst - the willpower is more of a dodgy IC tests. I have a friend who is healthily 8wks preg & I asked her to try one. Guess what, negative for her too!! So until I cam get to the shop, I'm not even going to bother with the rest of the tests I have at home

    With checking cervical position, It took a while to really notice the differences throughout my cycle. But you really can notice it after doing it for awhile (if course you have to get past the whole concept of doing it first!)

    I've been spot on with cycles since they've resumed so meh, who knows

    I've got no problems with the "icky" parts, like inspecting cm or getting elbow deep to check something hahaa. I might spend the evening getting to know what's what in there. Good ole internet will help there I'm sure.
    My ap just beeped to tell me my period is due in 7 days. Far too long if u ask me XD

    7 days doesn't sound too long mrsT but I can appreciate how anxious/excited you must feel!!!

    That's some really good advice on opening the doors for a debate. I just don't know the other parents as well as her and although I tried putting suggestions out there as to why they were doing those things it didn't really change her mind. My bigger concern is that she will speak of my future parenting techniques to others behind my back and not point them out to me. It doesn't help anyone and it's just gossip. But only she can change that. I think I'm just going to have to pick her up on it next time and tell her I don't like it. But like hopefully I'm not one for conflict :/

    I have no idea on the whole cervix positioning. How do you tell? I always get a little scared on googling these things, no idea what will pop up! Lol

    Google 'beautiful cervix' girls (dont know if I can link the actual site). Its pretty graphic but has photos throughout your cycle.

    Haha mrst, no need to go in up to your elbows!
